Reigning Champ Cardinals Fight for Respect in 2014

While the turnover rate among the college basketball elite is about as a high as they come – look at the March Madness odds, after all – it’s important early on for hoops fans to slow down just enough to not get ahead of themselves.

Lost in the confusion of Kentucky’s recruiting class and Michigan State’s performance at the Champions Classic is the fact that the reigning champion Louisville Cardinals are the still the team to beat.

Fresh off of their 2013 National Championship, the Cardinals are once again a factor on the NCAA Basketball moneyline. Compared to heavyweights like the Wildcat and Spartans, however, they’re an easy contender to overlook.

Louisville may not boast the top freshmen in the country, but with 15:2 odds of winning March Madness in 2014 and winning experience from their run last spring, they may still be the most intriguing bet option available in the Bovada sportsbook.

Can Rick Pitino and the Cards prove that last year was no fluke? That their national dominance last season wasn’t solely the result of outgoing talents Peyton Siva and Gorgui Dieng?

Bet on college basketball early and often this season to get a feel for just what this Louisville squad is capable of doing.
